Is Matt Ryan part of actual trade talks this offseason?
We have all heard the rhetoric out of Flowery Branch about Matt Ryan and Julio Jones’ future is up to the current general manager and head coach. We also know that the Falcons fan base is split on whether they want Matt to ever take a snap as the Falcons quarterback.
At his age, it is easy to understand why many have reservations about Matt Ryan being the starting quarterback of the Falcons but Matt also isn’t a problem that the club has to address right here right now.
What the Falcons have to do in order to keep Matt Ryan around for the next several years is change the offensive philosophy and start game planning to his strengths and weaknesses.
We have seen that work in places like Buffalo, Green Bay, New Orleans, Tampa Bay, LA Rams, and the Tennessee Titans. Every one of these places has a quarterback with limited skills and abilities but has found an offensive coordinator that is capable of building around what they do best and all of them were in the playoffs.
Stop believing Matt Ryan news from Twitter.
On Sunday, former Miami Hurricanes great and NFL alumnus turned radio personality Dan Sileo tweeted out that the Falcons are in fact having discussions about trading Matt Ryan. While it might be true, you would be better off believing that the tooth fairy and Santa Clause are dating than anything Sileo has to say.
He has never and will never be a credible source for anything NFL related.
While there is still a lot of time left before the start of the 2021 NFL season, one thing that we know is that Matt Ryan will be the starting quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons in 2021 and 2022 unless he decides to retire.
Unlike the Lions and Matt Stafford, there will be no mutual parting of the ways between Atlanta and Matt Ryan anytime soon.
